Abstract

Each year, 100000–150000 new cases of colorectal carcinoma occur in the USA, with an almost equal incidence in both sexes (Whalen 1990). According to the American Cancer Society, the incidence of and mortality from colorectal cancer in the USA are second after lung cancer in men and third in women; the incidence rose by 9.4% between 1973 and 1986. Dietary factors, family history, a variety of polyposis syndromes, and long-standing inflammatory bowel disease are risk factors for the development of colorectal carcinoma.
